The NFL announced its slate of 2018 regular season games in London on Thursday, and the Washington Redskins aren't on the bill.

The Eagles will play the Jaguars in London during the 2018 regular season, National Football League sources said.

The Redskins were part of one of the NFL's least memorable games, played on home soil or overseas, at Wembley Stadium on October 30, 2016.

The Philadelphia Eagles will face the Jacksonville Jaguars in a matchup of 2017 playoff teams, while the Tennessee Titans will face the Los Angeles Chargers.

Gridiron fans will be able to sample the action once again at Wembley, as well as at Tottenham Hotspur's brand new stadium. The Raiders, the home team in London for a second time, welcome the Seahawks to Tottenham for their first game in London.

The Eagles also have road games this season Dallas, Los Angeles Rams, New Orleans, New York Giants, Tampa Bay, Tennessee and Washington.

"We are excited as a franchise to be playing in London as part of the NFL's International Series", said Titans Controlling Owner Amy Adams Strunk.

The three-game London slate offers worldwide fans a bevy of enticing matchups.

The Seahawks are one of six teams that have yet to play across the pond, and NFL UK's managing director has expressed a desire to get those teams over there, according to The News Tribune. However, it should be noted why four of these teams are playing games on global soil in 2018. The exact order of those two games will be announced at a later date. While there was a ton of hype around the Raiders playing the New England Patriots in Mexico City this past season, Oakland wasn't very good and New England buzz sawed the Silver and Black. Those games will be October 21 and 28, with the order of the games announced closer to the season.

"We wanted to do the three games back-to-back". In the first-ever National Football League game played outside North America in August 1976, the Chargers played the St. Louis Cardinals in the Mainichi Star Bowl in Tokyo.
